Hey there,

I am using the Adobe Installshield tuner for creating a package to distribute Reader 7, with both the 7.0.1 and 7.0.2 updates. Everything works well except for the 7.0.2 installation. Each time the 7.0.2 exe kicks off before the 7.0.1 update is finished, resulting in an error. In the tuner program, I have tried checking the boxes to tell it to wait, with no luck. The 7.0.1 update works fine in exe format. I am using the /s /v/qb! switches for both updates. Running the 7.0.2 exe on it's own works fine, just not when I try to package it with 7.0 and 7.0.1. Any help on this would be most appreciated.

Thanks.

use winzip or some such to rip the msi's out of the exe packages for the updates.

I'm having the same issue. It appears that 7.0.2 kicks off before 7.0.1 completes. I've tried the "wait" checkboxes also with no luck.

I also tried using the "Direct Editor" under "Advanced Tools" to directly modify the CustomAction and InstallExecuteSequence tables using a post from psychoboust in another thread (Adobe Acrobat 7.0.1 Combined with Admin Install) as a guide. That didn't work either.

Anybody have any suggestions?

I don't know about nocalman, but I'm using the .MSIs in the transform, not the original .EXEs.

I found a great tool (script on ebay for 30€) works verry well ! [:D]
it runs as a computer startup script in active directory and checks if adobe is installed, then it updates the software !

I updated 250 pc`s with no problems in 1 hour !

Update 7.0.0, 7.0.1 and 7.0.2 to version 7.0.3
